    Lyle lived near us in Junction City, Kansas until just recently, when he and Jayne moved to Virginia. Lyle was a great neighbor, a true friend and a wonderful individual; and could always be counted on to “lend a helping hand” in any situation. I remember well the times after a snowstorm, looking out at the snow, dreading the task ahead only to see Lyle with his trusty snowblower turning into our driveway; and before heading back home he would have finished the driveways of neighbors up and down the street. Lyle Ulrey was a good man and a good friend. We will greatly miss him.

    We’re so very sorry to hear of Lyle’s passing and offer our condolences and prayers to Jane and the family. I worked with Lyle in the Jag office for some years before he retired and eventually moved closer to be near his family in Virginia. We enjoyed our work relationship and will remember Lyle and his sometimes antics of humor. May God comfort you through this time of grief as you prepare to lay him to rest. We’ll be holding all of you in our prayers.

    I was very sorry to hear (today) of SGM(R) Lyle Ulrey’s passing. Lyle was one of the legendary Army JAG Corps Sergeants Major. I spoke with Lyle every time that I saw him at one of the retiree events or when he attended events at the JAG School in Charlottesville. He always had a kind word and a quick story to share about the JAG Corps. He was one of the best and his pride in being a JAG Corps member, a Sergeant Major and most importantly, a Soldier shone on his face during each and every interaction. I never had the chance to serve with him on active duty but learned a lot from him through our conversations and short stories. Lyle will be truly missed. We are grateful for his service, blessed and fortunate to have known him.

    SGM Ulrey, you will be missed. Didn’t have a chance to serve in the same office but have heard lots of good stories- your character made paths for many. Your families are all in our prayers.
